Man buns. Love ‘em or think they are the ‘do of douchebags, the hairstyle is popular, especially among guys who’d rather pile it up than pay a barber.
Man buns used to mean something else entirely, but now It’s all about the long locks. Guys who sport the man bun (some may call it a top knot) are all in, making their mane the main attraction.
Who’s Wearing Man Buns?
Hipster bros are primarily the group going for this look.
But not just any old twenty- or thirty-something is the type to make their mark with a man bun. It’s not nerdy and it’s not neat. It’s creative but not cutesy. It’s by no means a ponytail, so put that out of your mind. And don’t call it an “updo.”
There’s something strangely intriguing about the dude who’s man bun material, but it’s hard to put your finger on it. What is it about this guy that makes the man bun work? Or, is it the man bun that catapulted his cool-factor up a notch?
The “chicken or the egg” theory is at play, yet for a guy to attempt the style in the first place takes a certain level of confidence, not to mention patience ‘till his hair length is long enough to fix a decent bun.
